    One cut and a quick $5m in damage. Can't imagine you can replace 30 gondola cars in short order.

    Somebody knows what they are doing. Seems incredibly dangerous to the person doing the cutting.

    I have to believe they put up some surveillance cameras after the 1st incident. Does seem like an inside job (current or past employee). Strange stuff, for sure.

    The GM is quoted in the CBC article as saying that they have the incident on camera, plus an alarm was triggered in the process. They also mentioned this:

    this isn't something that could be accomplished with bolt cutters. I'm assuming a gas powered saw or a torch. Either way its not something that takes place in 15 seconds and you run.

    Weird act of vandalism for sure...

    As for the cause, it's mysterious. There are millions of causes. My first guess would have to be some sort of eco-terrorism, something like what happened at Vail in '98, especially considering the west coast is experiencing an environmental crisis with the wildfires.
